After losing to the Bulls in Chicago last night, the Los Angeles Lakers on the brink of collapse. They’re four games out of a playoff spot, and ESPN’s playoff odds algorithm only gives them a 19.3% chance of making the postseason.
The crisis has apparently pushed Kobe Bryant to his breaking point, because after last night’s loss he took to Twitter to document a sleepless night.
The game in Chicago last night started at 8:30 local time and ended around 11 p.m.. At 3:00 a.m. central time, Kobe tweeted out this picture of him playing the piano with the caption, “Beethovens Moonlight Sonata calms me down when I reach my breaking point #relaxandfocus.”
Two hours after that (5:00 a.m.) he was back on Twitter to answer a follower’s question about how he learned to play piano:

90 minutes later — at around 6:30 a.m. local time — he tweeted this photo from the weight room with the caption, “see me in a fight with a bear. Pray for the bear” from The piano to the weight room #determined #psycho.”
He deleted that and retweeted the same picture with a watermark at 7:30 a.m.:
Given his Twitter activity, we’re almost certain he couldn’t have slept last night … unless he scheduled tweets for later or something.
The Lakers are either still in Chicago or they already flew to Memphis — where they’ll play the Grizzlies tomorrow night.
Either way, Kobe will need some rest today after pulling his very public all-nighter.
